Britain is now an elite dictatorship where majority opinions are crushed

Britain’s deranged war on cars, our looming ban on gas boilers, the debanking scandal, the failure to prosecute crime, the attempted cancellation of women, the sabotage of the Brexit agenda, the scale of migration: welcome to anti-democratic Britain, where the beleaguered majority is increasingly subject to the whims of an entitled, activist elite that often seems to despise the people over which it exercises so much power.

All the policies listed above share a devastating commonality: they are deeply unpopular, and would be crushed in a referendum after a fair campaign, were the politicians courageous enough to grant the public a say (in the case of Brexit, they did, of course, and continue to this day to resist implementing the revolutionary change implied by the vote).

In a truly majoritarian society, one where the demos actually exercised kratos, no form of crime would be tolerated, and certainly not burglaries or muggings. Nobody would dare to indoctrinate school children with extreme trans ideology, and the green agenda would be centred around urgent technological innovation rather than seeking to prevent working people from flying to holidays in the sun.

Yet we live in a very different political reality, one in which public opinion is flagrantly disregarded whenever it doesn’t align with the views of the ruling class. Westminster has become cartelised: the large parties are committed to an unrealistic dash to net zero, refuse to discuss the gargantuan cost involved, and omit to mention that Britain’s carbon emissions are about 3 per cent of China’s. On the great subjects of our time – family policy, the size of the state, the NHS and even planning rules – there is little difference between Tory, Labour and Lib Dem MPs, disenfranchising millions.

The intellectual conformity is stultifying, and has been reinforced by the emergence of an all-powerful Blob, the nexus of mandarins, policy advisers, quangocrats and other government agents, a class of “public servants” who don’t really like the public and are increasingly convinced that they have a constitutional duty to constrain and contain elected politicians. They are experts at delay, prevarication and lawfare, and are cheered on by the Left-wing activists who have taken over the legal profession, our cultural institutions, academia, charities and even many big companies.

Thus even in the rare instances when the Tories attempt to think the unthinkable and respond to public opinion, as with the Channel crossings, the system does its best to block any change, empowered by quasi-constitutional legislation such as the Equality Act, the Climate Change Act and our membership of the ECHR.

The upshot is an extraordinary disempowerment of the electorate: is it any wonder that some voters fear we risk becoming a democracy in name only? Take the absurd war on cars: a tiny minority of activists, council planners, devolved administrations and ministers are seeking to discourage the mode of transport that the vast majority of the population relies on. Or consider immigration, which is a lot higher than the public would like: all potential solutions to reduce numbers while preserving the economy are lambasted as gimmicks, meaningless or self-evidently stupid. The Tories have promised to cut numbers in every single one of their manifestos since at least the 1990s, and yet aren’t even pretending to try any longer. How does this not disastrously undermine trust in politicians.

Polls show that 55% people say that they want to.

Until recently, all parts of British society bought into the democratic ethos developed after the great voting reforms of the 19th and 20th century, or at least paid lip service to it. It was deemed snobbish to dismiss the views of ordinary voters out of hand, and borderline insane to seek to reverse the expansion of the consumer society.

That consensus, already left fragile by the Blairite legal revolution and his massive increase in the number of university graduates, was finally shattered after the 2016 Brexit referendum. Most of our institutions are now controlled by a pseudo-meritocratic elite convinced that only it can prevent the masses from reverting to ignorance, racism and prejudice.

Our new ruling class is paternalistic, messianic even: in a post-religious age, it has taken on the role of priest and savior of the common people. It still occasionally feels the need to legitimize unpopular ideas by pretending that they garner majority support, hence all the polls “proving” that people support net zero. Yet when asked to pay the price in terms of actual cash or drastically reduced convenience, the public immediately rebels.

There was a time when we worried, rightly, that the tyranny of the majority was the main threat to freedom and prosperity; today, it is the tyranny of the minority that poses the greatest danger. Our new task is to prevent the majority from being oppressed: how do we stop the capture of every institution by the radical Left? How do we make Parliament more representative, and reduce the power of the Blob? One answer would be to use a lot more referenda, as the Swiss do; another would be radical reform of the Civil Service, turning ministers into CEOs with proper control over mandarins.

I’m well aware that the majority can have bad or evil ideas, or vote for maniacs. We need to retain – and in some cases, further develop – protections against majoritarian abuses, even if some of the current ones are no longer fit for purpose or have been hijacked. Elites have helped drive much good social change in recent decades, including by fighting racism and prejudice against all sorts of minorities.

But the pendulum has swung too far away from majoritarian rule, and too much power handed to social engineers. Today, the problem doesn’t lie with the public, which is largely tolerant and liberal-conservative, but with the elites, who have become authoritarian and anti-democratic, captured by wokery and a dislike of material aspiration.

What we call populism, in the current British context, is really the majority trying to reassert itself. Voters are developing a new form of class consciousness; “motorists” are becoming a political force. The Ulez fiasco is acting as a gateway, normalising opposition to other excesses.

The message to politicians is clear: start listening to the voters again, or else Britain will soon face a popular uprising orders of magnitude greater – and more unpredictable – than Brexit.


They have no 2A :man_shrugging:t4:


Second ( no pun ) what does the 2A have to do with it?
We talk a big talk, but the 2A is not working!

And clearly, it’s not going to work!
If we had a functioning 2A, we wouldn’t be here!
We seem to be out numbered and a majority of our youth ( all ) have been outwitted and fully programmed by the media.
There’s more of their message getting out than ours.
All I hear from our media is that it’s all UNPRECEDENTED!

I’m beginning to feel like a Spartan at Thermopylae! Except we aren’t going to have the chance to fight in the shade, for we have no Spartan blood in us!

We are pissing in a volcano hoping it won’t explode!

The saddest thing is, they are going to take 2024, and we can’t ( won’t ) do sh@t about it! It’s time we faced facts! When they succeeded, it will be “ YES, MADAM PRESIDENT” as she defaults on the United States! She took in money to bail out BLM RIOTERS, imagine what she’ll do when confronted by the cartels or China, she’ll be prostate at their feet!

Me, I started studying Mandarin, and fentanyl salesmanship! If ya can’t beat’em…well you know the thing. That’s when it should have ended!

The best we are going to do is create memes of the removals of all our appliances, and watch as the cartels and China divide and parcel out our country!
The time for the 2A was two years ago! It’s so late for that now, they are laughing in our faces about it. Those small wins in tiny bought off courts are a way to keep us off guard!
They are not making a mockery they are executing a well laid out plan!

Sorry for the rant at 3:00am, I’ve warned years ago, that we aren’t going to make it! If someone has a plan on a phuckin napkin, I’ll take it!


Happy Anniversary, is cake still legal there? :grinning:


Hmmm… I wonder where he got this idea. :thinking:

Unfortunately, the writing is on the wall.

Happy anniversary!!


That may be true on a small scale!
We have a nation to save, revive and protect from all enemies…when China owns all the farmland and decides to ration food I don’t see that we will have a choice! Although if somehow people let it get that far…please put a bullet in my head! Because if it gets that far, we’re not going to use the 2A for that either. And I’m not making memes in Cantonese!

If this is a globalists plan, then our Red Dawn is on our doorstep! How does one propose to handle that individually?

I prefer the head on approach, strike first and don’t look back.

We can start at our border!


Nice rhyme. :sunglasses:
My translator did a bad job translating this back into English, “Make memes without Cantonese”. I guess that explains the instructions we see on products from China. :rofl:


Let’s examine the options:

  1. Run for office and change the trajectory of the nation as an elected leader. Nah. I can’t do that, 'cause the electoral process is corrupt and I’ll not lend my name to a corrupt process!
  2. Unelect/Recall corrupt political leaders. Nah, I can’t help with that, 'cause I have to fix my lawnmower.
  3. Vote for quality candidates and contribute your time and money to their election. Nope. Can’t be done as I have a knot in my shoe lace.
  4. Do nothing and hope it all works out. That’s the best solution, 'cause it requires no commitment and can be accomplished with apathy.

Nah, I can’t do that, doing nothing is too difficult. Your posts are equivalent to your last point. Posting your mental anguish here is not affecting change, either. I suspect many here are like me, active in fighting for our rights, belong to rights groups, vote, contact our reps, etc.


//I suspect many here are like me, active in fighting for our rights, belong to rights groups, vote, contact our reps, etc.//

I’ll believe it when I see it.

See it? You just read it, mf. I am active with several rights groups, the ones that actually get things done, and a life member of the NRA, too.


Now is not the time to give up, there is still a window to save this country and we need all non woke Americans working together to get thid accomplished.

Start by educating those around you it can be done. Then contact your legislators. If you are of a mind donate to those who push the conservative save America agenda. Donate your time.

I know most of us on here already do this but it never hurts to remind those losing hope or just not doing their part to get involved.


Sitting here pouring out contempt, for a group that I am willing to bet is active and voting and doing whatever they can to effectuate change. Yeah, that’s going to help.
